Another 8% of polled voters said they were "undecided" on the issue.[1] A total of 500 people were polled on September 22nd.[2]

The question asked by Rasmussen Reports reads as follows:[2]

A statewide initiative will be on the ballot this November. We'd like to ask if you support it or not: The initiative concerns state, county and city revenue. Here is the ballot title: This measure would limit growth of certain state, county and city revenue to annual inflation and population growth, not including voter-approved revenue increases. Revenue collected above the limit would reduce property tax levies. Do you definitely favor, probably favor, probably oppose, or definitely oppose this initiative?
